  1. The Crib

    The Crib. Like most of us who have the woodworking bug, when my wife and I found out we were going to have our first kid I immediately knew my children would only sleep in a crib built by me…. That sounded great in my head but I wholly underestimated (again) what I had committed to. I began...
  2. Baby Crib

    My wife and I were expecting a baby girl in mid October, so a few months ago I got started on building a crib for her. The first step was to do some poking around online to get an idea of exactly how I wanted to go about building it. In doing so, I stumbled across Matt Cermona's walnut and...
  3. My first woodworking project (baby Crib)

    when I started this project for the little womans first grandbaby I had never built a thing. I had no tools (although I was looking for a reason to buy a grizzly saw), I didn't even know the difference between a plunge router and a fixwd router. I decided to make the crib without the use of...
  4. Grandbaby's 1st crib - co-sleeper from cherry and maple

    Sooo…..I've been on this site for a while, just looking at other's posting and trying to absorb as much information as I possibly can. Thanks to all who take time out of their lives to submit posts. They are a very beneficial learning tool for us newbies. I am posting my very first piece of...
  5. A baby cot for my sister

    My sister had her first baby back in February of this year. She asked me to build her a baby cot and asked me to build it like a photo she found online. The design was some mass produced plastic and pressed metal garbage. So I told her that "I'll do something a little better than that, so leave...
  6. Baby Bed -Toddler Bed-Full Size Bed Combo

    A life long buddy asked me if I'd build a baby bed for his only child's first baby. Needless to say, I was honored to do it. So I asked ALOT of questions and I'm pretty sure his daughter thought I was the head engineer on the crazy train. I build everything to suite the person using it. The...
  7. Cinderella Rocking Cradle

    This is my Cinderella rocking cradle. She is elaborately carved with roses.There is a way to stop the rocker from rocking by pulling down the board attached to the rocker that levels it off. The board is held up with velcro,and is on a hinge. I have included some pictures of how I carved the...
  8. Crib for Granddaughter

    I made this crib for my first grandchild. My daughter chose spindles instead of slats…ouch 52 turned spindles! That's a stack of wood to turn…I'll admit I was pretty "grumpy" about all the lathe work, but softened up about it once I saw pictures of my granddaughter in the crib. A Oneway...
  9. Baby crib

    After completing the changing table/dresser, I went to work on a crib with similar design elements. The crib is made from hard maple and maple plywood. The end panels are joined to the front and back panels using connecting bolts and steel cross-dowels, but I've had a lot of trouble using the...

  11. 3 in 1 Baby Crib

    My oldest daughter announced that she and her husband were expecting (our first grandchild!) so I decided I would build them a crib. I liked the 3 in 1 crib plan from Wood Magazine and I built this one out of Cherry. All went well except when we were putting it together. I had read about the...
  12. grand daughters crib

    After our son surprised us last fall that he and his girlfriend were going to have a baby and I got over the shock that I wasn't quite 50 yet either, which to me seems like the magic grandfather number. I decided to build the crib myself, again I used Red Oak my favorite material. I bought the...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    Hi, neighbor. This is my first post, hopefully this is the correct forum. I am taking down one mature Avocado tree. Tree is about 30' in height so there are some large limbs (+5" Diameter) plus the trunk about 10" Dia. x approx. 7'. Everything is in the round and green. Avo cuts like butter...
  14. Joinery
    So I am in need of some advice. My wife and I are adopting and I want to build the baby's crib. I have seen Jeff's crib on LJ and that really inspired me to do it. So, on to my need for advice. I have A LOT of 4/4 red oak. To keep the weight down I am resawing them down to 3/8" for the vertical...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    A relative gave me and my wife a dining room set. Long story short we want to change its color (see pics below). We are looking to make the furniture look medium dark brown so that it will match the rest of our furniture in the house. Any recommendations on how to go about doing this. We would...
